GIRLS

1. Cheverus: Cheverus won three Class A outdoor titles from 2017-19, as well as the indoor state title in 2019. And with Victoria Bossong the preseason favorite to win three individual events, Cheverus will again be tough to beat this spring. 

2. Gorham: The Rams were runners-up at the Class A state indoor meet in 2020. With juniors Emma Green, Alyvia Caruso (fourth in the long jump indoors) and sprinter Sydney Connolly (fourth in the 200 indoors), they’ll be in the mix.

3. York: With multi-event star Alexandra Brent and pole vaulter Phoebe Slovenski leading the way, the Wildcats will be in the hunt for the Class B state title. With 25 athletes, they have good numbers.

BOYS

1. Scarborough: Winners of three of the last four Class A state titles outdoors, the Red Storm will be right there again. Scarborough will be led by juniors Jayden Flaker and Zachary Barry, who will both run multiple events, as well as junior Nick Connolly, one of the top returning throwers in the state.

2. Gorham: With Andrew Farr in the sprints and Ryan Gendron in the high jump – as well as junior Calvin Cummings in the distance events – the Rams will rack up significant points to put them in the hunt. Cummings finished fourth in cross country in the Cumberland County state qualifier (16:33.90).

3. York: Without a single individual state champion, York won the Class B indoor team title in 2020 by five points. The Wildcats – who won two of the last five Class B outdoor titles (and tied for it in 2018) – are led by Rhys Evans and senior high jumper Christian Burke, as well as junior Colin Monsen, a budding decathlete.
